Ian has a set list of songs which has been developed over many years of experience with audiences around the world!
He will sing many of the 'Greatest Hits of Tom Jones', plus popular songs from his live show.
The accent is on fun and enjoyment for the audience, so there are plenty of upbeat songs, such as 'It's Not Unusual' , 'Kiss' , ' Sexbomb ' etc. blended with some classics such as ' The Green, Green Grass of Home ' and ' I'll Never fall In Love again '
All of the songs are coordinated with his fabulous state of the art sound and lighting system, which caters for up to 150 guests and small to medium sized venues as standard.
What will Ian wear and how will he appear?
Ian will model his look on the very popular 'Las Vegas' costume that Tom Jones wore in the 70's and 80's!
He will typically wear a dress shirt with lace frill, black fitted trousers, Cuban heeled black boots and, of course, the belt with a large silver buckle to add the finishing touch to a real show outfit that has the 'wow factor' for your guests.

What equipment do you bring with you?
Most venues will have the space to provide for the set up shown in the picture and video below.......
But we can tailor the size of the performance area to smaller venues if needed.
How and when do I pay you for the show?o
Most bookings will be made by a 50% deposit, followed by a bank transfer of the balance one week before the event date. Some bookings will be via payment in cash on the night of the event, immediately after sound-check.
This gives you, the customer, the chance to listen and see Ian and his sound and lighting rig, so you can have confidence that you and your guests are going to get a top quality show!
Payment after sound-check gives Ian confidence that all transactions are completed and he can give his full attention to putting on a superb Tom Jones Tribute Act!
What guarantee do I have that you will turn up on the day?
This is a very fair question!
Ian will always provide you with a written industry standard contract that guarantees the booking date for you and he will never offer your date to anyone else after contracts are signed.
There are cancellation clauses to check, but these are similar to those used by other top professional artists and agencies all around the U.K.
All contracts are sent and received via the world famous 'Adobe Sign' system, which is another layer of security and reassurance for you as the customer!
My venue are asking me for a PAT certificate re equipment safety testing and a
P.L.I. insurance document. How do I get these?
We can send you a copy of these certificates by email, no problem.
Ian always carries the originals with him to all performances, so they are available for anyone needing to see them.
Ian has all of his sound and lighting equipment PAT tested annually for safety and he carries up to £10 million pounds of Public Liability Insurance via his Equity Membership.
